For Chelsea McCormick, living in Cedar Springs is supposed to be temporary, nothing more than a chance to slow life down so that she can sort out the chaos of her life. Period. The painfully quiet lifestyle in a tiny, mountain town with a half-brother she barely knows—and certainly doesn’t like very much—is not where she sees herself for more than a couple of months.
But when two very different men vie for her attention, Chelsea finds her beliefs challenged in ways she never thought possible.
The owner of the town’s newest café, Scott Harding, has always loved the small town life. Settling down in a place with a sense of community, like Cedar Springs, then falling in love and starting a family is Scott’s idea of perfection. Is it possible to have the life he craves? Scott has had his doubts, until he meets Chelsea McCormick, a woman who makes everything he’s ever wanted, seem possible.
The problem is, Scott isn’t the only man interested in Chelsea. New to town himself, Lucas Lee has been hired as the contract manager of Cedar Springs latest multifamily development. Driven and ambitious, Lucas sees this project as a turning point in his career, catapulting him into a more prestigious position, far from Cedar Springs. While Lucas has never been interested in a serious relationship, Chelsea just might be special enough to change his mind.
As summer winds down, Chelsea realizes it should be time to move on. But now, she’s not so sure. Things in Cedar Springs have just started to get interesting with two available and smokin’ hot men who’ve just moved to town. Men who represent two very different paths. Men who both want her…
Love, adoration and a future? Or, excitement, passion and the unknown? One man appeals to who she wants to be, and one to who she realizes she’s always been. How can she possibly choose?
